In the Initial Evaluation Results ICANN analyzes and evaluates the technical and economic aspects of the proposed new gTLDs. Among other things, the infrastructure of the technical backends for registry operation is examined. 22 points are required to pass the technical part. The IDN extension (IDN = Internationalized Domain Names) relying on the technical basis of KSregistry significantly exceeded this requirement with 29 of 30 points.
Also the financial and legal part, parented by the consulting firm ThomsenTrampedach and the lawyer Torsten Bettinger, received a high evaluation result. The TLD scored 10 of 11 possible points, 8 were needed to pass the test.
"We are glad that our work has received such a great result in the review by ICANN", says Oliver Fries, CTO of KSregistry GmbH. "Further, we are very confident about the result of the still to be evaluated 28 applications that rely on KSregistry as backend provider."
The evaluations completed to date by ICANN concern 27 multilingual (IDN) TLDs. Their launch is expected for later this year.
